Primare I22 Integrated Amplifier

Primare I22 Integrated Amplifier

The Primare I22 is an upgradable two x 80 watt integrated amplifier utilising twin proprietary Ultra-Fast Power Device (UFPD) power modules. UFPD's performance results in a naturally fast, clean and agile sound over a much wider frequency range and with exceptional headroom. Ecologically the Primare I22 integrated amplifier is far superior to conventional Class A/B designs being extremely efficient without generating excessive heat. In addition it provides a special eco-friendly standby mode of just 0.3W. Clearly visible on the Primare I22's white dimmable VFD display is a versatile menu, which allows the renaming of inputs and the setting of operational parameters for each - volume, balance and power-up level for example.

Primare's UFPD technology provides for the possibilities of a full-range 'audiophile' Class D design. It is a new and significant Class D technology which is remarkable for its performance consistency across the entire audio bandwidth. Traditional Class D amplifiers have a signature response, which is fabulous at low frequencies but can sound harsh and brittle at higher frequencies due to circuit instability produced by insufficient feedback. UFPD actively adjusts the feedback required to deliver a higher level of gain across the entire audio band, maintaining performance irrespective of load (impedance) variations. Primare's UFPD treats all signals equally, keeping distortion very low at all frequencies. With a very wide 'load independent' frequency response UFPD is able to drive any speaker while maintaining control and accuracy.

An optional DAC board is available, comprising three digital inputs for the upgrading of existing CD players via their digital outputs, and the streaming of music files from PCs and Macs. There is an isochronous USB-B input (16-24bit data at 44.1 to 96 kHz), a TOSLINK connector (16-24 bit data at 44.1-192 kHz) and SPDIF (16-24 bit/44.1-192kHz). Specialised processing at the Isochronous USB-B input re-clocks the incoming data for reduced jitter and greater bit resolution through the DAC, optimising sound quality from music files.

So as not to damage little ears, the Primare I22 amplifier can be set to a maximum volume level using the C23 system remote or the I22 controls. For seamless home theatre system integration, the I22 contributes its two independent 80W amplification channels through input four when the SSP mode is selected.
